Texas A&M Knocks Lady Vols From Unbeaten Ranks

Texas A&M Knocks Lady Vols From Unbeaten Ranks

The Volunteers (12-4, 3-2) were led by Jordan Bowden (15 points), Kyle Alexander (14), Admiral Schofield (12) and Jordan Bone (10).

It was the first time Texas A&M lost five consecutive games since January 4 through February.

Gilder scored 16 points, Hogg had 13 and Tonny Trocha-Morelos had 10 for Texas A&M, which committed 17 turnovers. He scored six points and handed out six assists after missing three straight games due to a knee injury.

The Aggies' last two losses before this game were decided by one point each - a 69-68 setback to LSU decided on an off-balance 3-pointer in the final second and a 74-73 decision at No. 21 Kentucky.

Earlier in the week, the Tennessee men's basketball team rode career-high performances from its two leading scorers to a victory at Vanderbilt.

Tennessee, which was plus-eight in turnovers at the half, went into intermission with a 36-28 lead.

The Aggies regained the lead with 9 seconds left after Westbrook fouled Williams on a 3-point attempt.

Tennessee wasn't as effective in turning points into turnovers - 15 points from turnovers, compared to Texas A&M's 18.

Pulling within six at 65-59 with 3:41 to go, there was a glimmer of hope for the Aggies.

Texas A&M: The 3-point shooting that kept Texas A&M relatively close in the first half deserted the Aggies as they attempted to rally.

Trailing by one with 7.8 seconds remaining in overtime, Tennessee had the ball with a chance to win, but Evina Westbrook's pass to Jaime Nared bounced wide and out of bounds, resulting in a turnover. They combined for just 21 points against Texas A&M's size, but Tennessee won anyway.

The Vols won the battle of the boards, 38-29, and held even in points in the paint 32-32.

A&M returns to the court on Tuesday as the Aggies host Ole Miss with tip-off slated for 8 p.m.
